Sunday January 06, 1991, Epiphany

US date format: 1/6/1991, UK date format: 6/1/1991

It was Sunday, under the sign of Capricorn (see birth chart on January 6, 1991). The US president was George H. W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of January people in US were listening to Justify My Love by Madonna. In UK Bring Your Daughter... To The Slaughter by Iron Maiden was in the top 5 hits. White Fang, directed by Randal Kleiser, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1991 while Lady Boss by Jackie Collins was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Coasting. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Back to the Future Part III or After Burner III.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
